This is Hailey Bernot I am writing to discuss an important issue that I have noticed in Mentor High School. Thirty Three percent of teenagers report falling asleep in school and this is something that I have noticed daily at Mentor High. The school day at Mentor High School starts way too early and I think that many students and staff members would agree because it is affecting students learning and health. Schools across the world start at as early as 7 A.M. or as late at 9 A.M. Many early starting high schools have changed their starting times because students grades were dropping and they were not as prepared and focused.
Students don’t take advantage of the opportunities they are provided in high school, like dual-enrollment, that could save them time and money in college. Every year students are given the opportunity to do dual enrollment which would save them hundreds to thousands in college, but most miss their chance and are required to take remedial classes in college. According to statistics, “Complete College America reports that almost 50% of the students entering 2-year colleges are required to take remedial classes. ( Rath Par.15)”. To further explain, due to students not taking advantages in high school are required to take remedial classes they most-likely took in high school and pay around triple the amount.
They have to walk several hours to get to school, and even these schools lack resources or support for students at various levels. These children are actually more likely to drop out of school due to family labor responsibilities. As recorded in the CIA World Factbook, of the 2.5 million children in Peru, approximately 865,600 children are in the labor force. The United Nations International Children 's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Anthony Lake has met with students, community members, government officials and civil society partners to see how Child Friendly Schools and Intercultural Bilingual Education programmes are contributing to improved learning results and transforming the lives of Peruvian children. UNICEF has supported Peru’s community surveillance programmes which brings together local authorities and health services together, but a more consistent and refined view is urgent for indigenous children to learn further
It cost parents way more money for clothes if you have a dress code or have a school . It would cost your parents 40% more money for a dress code clothes each year. Not many high schools and colleges had school uniforms in the 1960s, but most had dress codes. For a good portion of the 1960s, young women were not allowed to wear pants of any kind to class, and young men were forbidden to wear blue jeans. Students were expected to maintain a neat appearance, and until the second half of the decade they generally complied without much complaint.
A recent study released by Pearson that questioned over 400,000 students in grades 6-12 shows that only “48% of students think their teachers care about them…and only 45% of students think teachers care if they are absent from school” (Hare, 2015). This shocking statistic demonstrates what American students think about their teachers. Most students are under the impression that their teachers don’t care about them. When teachers don’t care about their students and allow them to fail, many students with unrealized potential give up on education. Mike Rose’s “I Just Wanna Be Average” describes his journey through high school on the vocational track after the results of his “tests got confused with those of another student named Rose” (Rose, 1989, p. 2).
Have you ever seen innocent kids and disappointed parents crying in front of happy smile of other families? That sad image is usually caught in the lottery of any charter school. Ted Cruz said in School Choice Week “And yet, there are millions of kids in the waiting list for charter school. We should not put our future in the wait list.” The parents choose to put their kids future on the hand of luck because they want the best education for their kids to succeed. The documentary Waiting for Superman stated that our nation public school system was used to be the dream of the world.
As many of them have already found out is that teachers at Poston Butte don 't like excuses for late work. From the first day of school on the 25th, a considerable amount of students are failing. This could be because they were not prepared for the seriousness and strictness of the grading policy here at Poston Butte High school. This being said, could this have shaken up some of the freshman? Or even made the High School transition a little rough and scary?
This means he either has to hitchhike or walk because his family can’t afford the money for gas, that could be someone in a teen in Douglas community. Not only is he the poorest kid in his new school, he’s also the only Indian, Douglas is a very mixed race school, they should let the teachers choose if the kids
Since parents tend to have limited English language skills, the communication between school and parent is limited. (Huffcut 34). Hmong parents who do not speak English insist that their children communicate in their native language and keep up Hmong traditions (Vang, F. 4). First generation Hmong American college students do not perform as well as other students because of language barrier too. Students whose parents are illiterate in English or their primary language are more likely to be underachievers in school (Vang, C. 10).
Also many seventeen year old kids don’t understand what owing tens of thousands of dollars in loans will mean for them when they graduate. When they leave high school they think that they can go to the most expensive school money can pay for, but in reality they cannot. Many parents are encouraging their children to reach for the stars, which they should, but you must also do so within your means. You must also understand that mommy and daddy are not going to be paying for everything. In all college is still worth it.
It was good idea to change the Wyandotte attendance policy, if students miss more than seven days in the last semester because most people don’t come school in their senior years. One reason that Wyandotte attendance policy should change because students will fail in their classes. Another reason that Wyandotte’s attendance policy should change because students don’t know what they learn in their classes if they did not come school. The last reason was that it’s hard for students when they went to college because they don’t know anything. In conclusion, if students did not come school in their senior years than it will be really bad for them and also they are not allowed to come in graduation
Introductory Paragraph School sports have been a tradition for many years, however many people think it interferes with student education. Studies have shown that without after school activities, students grades have increased. Therefore, schools should eliminate sports to help students reach their academic potential, provide money directly toward education, and get parents more involved with their kids learning. Body Paragraph #1 As anyone who has been through college knows, students that do well in school are more likely to reach their career goals. According to an article written by Amanda Ripley, Ernest Singleton, the superintendent of Premont Independent School District located in Texas, canceled sports in order to decrease their academic failure rate (11).
In 2013, budget cuts in a school system of Akron, Ohio caused schools to have to cut their fine arts programs; therefore, over half of the school’s population had no choice but to change their schedule with different courses. To prove that this budget cut was not working to their school board, a small group of students conducted a study with all of the students that were once involved in the fine arts programs before they had been cut. Some of these questions included: “ever since cuts were made, have you begun participating in drugs?” and “has your overall school performance dropped since you have had the arts?” Afterwards, for reassurance that the students in question were not lying, the group asked common core teachers if they had noticed
In homeschooling, children are educated at home by a parent or a tutor. There are nearly two million homeschooled children in the United Stated with the number increasing by 10-12 % each year (Campbell, 2013). Parents who homeschool their kids, they do it because they do not trust the current school system and they feel their kids will do better if they take control of their education. Others do it because they want their kids to follow their religious or moral beliefs, or they are afraid for their children’s safety since in public schools they are exposed to drugs, bulling and violence. On the other hand, homeschooling has some negative aspects as well.
